Attention Citizens of Talossa!

The rules for the upcoming election are available here: http://www.talossa.ca/files/electionrules.php. These rules are an addition to Talossan law regarding elections, specifically OrgLaw Sections III,IV and V and Lexhatx title B. Be aware that not every detail of the law has been explicitly included in the rules so knowledge of the relevant laws might be useful.

The rules can also be found on the rules page of the database.

This thread serves to announce and inform Parties, Senatorial Candidates, King and Provinces about what needs to happen before the election and as a way for parties and candidates to register.




Secretár d'Estat/Secretary of State

1. Timetable (unless a month of recess is called in which case the dates shall be adjusted)
13 September 23:59 TST (-5 UTC) - Registration deadline Political Parties.
14 September 23:59 TST - Registration deadline Senatorial Candidates.
15 September, morning - Balloting Day, all citizens receive their ballots.
1 October 19:30 TST - Election deadline, results are announced.
14 October - Certification deadline
30 October - Party fee deadline to sit in the Cosa during the first Clark

2. Information for Parties
In the upcoming election the 200 seats of the 59th Cosa will be elected.

For a party to be able to obtain seats in the 59th Cosa two things need to happen.
1. You need to register with the Chancery. This needs to happen at least 24 hours before balloting day!

Registration should include:
* Full Party name
* Party Initials
* 50 word statement
* Party Leader(s)
* Candidate list (this is optional, but if no list is supplied only the party leader is allowed to receive seats (see Lex.b.2.3 for the full rules regarding party lists).
* Party platform URL (optional)

All of the above can be done by posting in this thread, sending me a pm or sending an email to talossachancery@gmail.com. (Information can be updated at any time before the deadline, but the initial registration needs to include at least all the mandatory parts).
Candidate lists and Platform URLs can still be provided/updated the day before balloting day.

The Chancery has a list of approximately 51 citizen email addresses that parties can only contact via the Chancery. The Chancery will send out a maximum of TWO emails per party. If you are a party leader, please email the Chancery at talossachancery@gmail.com EXACTLY what you want sent out. Please allow 48 hours notice. The Chancery will email exactly what you send (no editing). The Chancery will not target specific citizens and will not send out more than one email per party per week.

2. You need to pay a fee. This needs to happen before assigning cosa seats.
The fee is 6¤40 ($10 USD) and needs to be paid to the Bürgermeister of Inland Revenue, Sir X. Pol Briga. Contact him to find out more about the best way to pay the fee. Parties can appear on the ballot before the fee has been paid.

3. Information regarding referenda statements (King + existing parties)
In addition, parties that currently hold cosa seats may provide a statement of up to 50 words for each referendum either in favour or against the bill.

In addition, the King may provide a 150 word statement for each amendment that was passed after the Ziu overruled an earlier objection.

This can be done by posting in this thread, sending me a pm or sending an email to talossaChancery@gmail.com. Please do not wait until the last minute for this as they may have to be manually added to the ballot by the database admin


4. Information for Senatorial Candidates
Three Senate seats will be contested during the upcoming elections: Cézembre (3 cosa terms), Florencia (3 cosa terms), and Maricopa (3 cosa terms)
.
Some of these will be conducted by the provinces themselves. Others will be conducted by the Chancery. A list will be included in this post with the most up to date information about which elections are conducted by the Chancery.

If elections are conducted by the Chancery, the election will use IRV and allow write-in candidates, but candidates do get the opportunity to be listed on the ballot. All you have to do to appear on the ballot is register with the Chancery. This can be done by posting in this thread, sending me a pm or sending an email to talossaChancery@gmail.com.

In order to appear on the ballot you have to register before the start of the elections.

5. Information for Provinces
The Chancery provides the option for provinces to have their Senate and Assembly elections conducted by the Chancery. Additionally in the case of assembly elections, provinces may provide supplementary instructions to the voters (this could be a description of the relevant provincial law, whether to vote for a party or person, a list of provincially registered parties, etc). The Chancery requests that provincial representatives supply this information (what elections should be conducted, voting instructions) to the Chancery. I will also look at relevant provincial law and post a thread in each province asking for details. If no information is provided by the province (in whatever form) the default option will be to include an option for a provincial assembly vote, but NOT to conduct the senatorial election, as this requires an explicit request from the province.

6. Assembly elections (Could be subject to change until balloting day.) -Pending confirmation by the provinces
Atatürk - Election conducted by the Chancery.
Benito - Election conducted by the Chancery. Instructions: "For the Benito Legislative Assembly, please vote for a party, or PRESENT if you wish to cast a null ballot."
Cézembre - Election conducted by the province.
Fîovâ - Election for the Prasidïeu conducted by the Chancery. Instructions: "Ranked choice voting, same as for Senators.
Florencia - Election conducted by the Chancery. Instructions: "Vote for a party or vote "present""
Maricopa - No election, all citizen can claim a seat in the Cabana.
Maritiimi Maxhestic - No election, all citizens can claim a seat in the Provincial assembly during the election.
Vuode - No election, all citizens can claim a seat in the Estats Xhenerais during the election..

7. Senate elections (Could be subject to change until balloting day.)
Cézembre (3 cosa terms) - Election conducted by the province.
Florencia (3 cosa terms) - Election conducted by the Chancery.
Maricopa (3 cosa terms) - Election conducted by the Chancery.

IF the Currently Declared Senate Candidates needs to be updated from the Cézembre Nomination Thread

The current candidate is
@Glüc da Dhi S.H.

With perhaps more pending, and I suppose that it is possible that a citizen who is not yet a member of these boards could potentially declare candidacy via email.
